chan. >> slash loftus. >> okay. >> entertainable for these purposes. i just wanted to say to jim perkins and beverly and kathy i feel i will be doing this a lot tonight but as someone that worked in the system as a domestic violence prosecutor and i am sure president mazzucco feels the same way i lived the changes that you all made happen. you improved our system. you created 400 recommendations that kept women and families safe in this city, and as a participant in the system i saw the changes from the dedicated courtroom to the dedicated trained judges to the trainings at the police academy to the training for the prosecutors. none of that happens by accident. it happens by method logically and makings system change is not easy and 10 years later and i can remember -- gene rolins is here is talking about the audit. this has been lived and breathed and participated in by this city and by the city family, and without leadership and accountability -- you know, commissioner shorter we wouldn't have the gains that we had so i can't under score my gratitude for you and your lead
, christina, chin, ingles, jim inglings, jake block, chi, jane, susan, kay walker, deborah -- brian blake, iris, martis, gran, stacy, kevin, rose, and beth palmer. next speaker. >> thank you. my name is -- i'm a district 8 t.i.c. owner. i purchased a three unit t.i.c. in 2007, with a 20% downpayment. i lived with my wife and two children. since the peak of the market there's been a dynamic change in the financial lending practices of banks in the bay area that i believe is quite unfair. right now, we have tried to sell one of the three units in our building twice, with no success, due to the inability to refinance. additionally, my partner and i have tried to refinance our property twice in the past year and a half. both times being denied. the reason that we are being denied, our mortgage is the fact that many banks right now, we have approached three banks in the bay area, to refinance our house. they required 30% down and above market rates of about 5 to 6% mortgage rate onable basis. what that is telling the marketplace and people like myself who want to live in the city that t.i.c.s
to san francisco instead. thank you. >> chair wiener: thank you very much. next speaker. >> jim ingles, i'm her husband, and am in the t.i.c. partnership. i'm a disabled veteran and a government employee, but not a millionaire, not a multi-millionaire. and conversion to condos are important to us individual people, as normal taxpayers, and as moderate income individuals. we see this legislation as not damaging the rental market. maybe a few units, 15% of t.i.c.s are rented, 85 or people -- 85% of those t.i.c.s are occupied by the owners. the people who convert are going to stay in those houses and continue to pay taxes, and continue to volunteer, like my wife and i, and continue to be part of the society. if we can't condo convert the odds are that we can't stay in the city. we love it here and we'd love to stay. thank you. >> chair wiener: thank you very much. next speaker. >> hi. thank you. so my name is lance wilson, i'm in district 10, i live in potrero hill. i was a rent control renter for the the first seven years i was in san francisco. i have been a t.i.c. owner now for five years
